With branches in Wan Chai, Mong Kok, Sheung Wan and Tsim Sha Tsui, it’s hard to believe that 18 Grams first started out at this small espresso bar in Causeway Bay. Managed by a world-class barista judge, 18 Grams believes in fresh, locally-roasted coffee beans. Their espresso-based coffee has helped create and dominate the Hong Kong coffee scene. Pop along to Canon Street to see where it all began and sip a perfectly ratioed cup of coffee.
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay might be home to some seriously great bars, but the neighbourhood is following the footsteps of Sheung Wan to become another excellent coffee central on Hong Kong island. From Aussie-inspired coffee spots like Mansons Lot to Japanese-style java like Omotesando Koffee and Favilla Café, Wan Chai and Causeway Bay has got ‘em all.
RECOMMENDED: Books are also the perfect companion for your coffee. Make a visit to one of Hong Kong’s best bookstores to discover your next novel.
